Aegis Semiconductor is developing a new type of uncooled LWIR infrared focal plane array (FPA) based on an array of thermally tunable thin-film near-infrared (NIR) optical filters. As thermal radiation is absorbed in each pixel and its temperature varies, the peak of the NIR passband of the filter is shifted.
Mitsubishi Electric has succeeded in pushing its SOI (silicon-on-insulator) uncooled FPA technology to new levels of performance.
Image Fusion 2005 is a conference that will cover a technology that will be a part of most future systems.
